KUCHING: The Sarawak government has agreed to provide a site and allocation for the construction of a control post in Lawas, the Malaysian Army said.
Its First Infantry Division commander Mejar-Jen Datuk Dzulkafli Mustaffa said the site, located in the north of the state, was 1.3ha wide.
He, however, did not provide a timeline for the implementation of the control post.
“Currently, we are waiting for incoming funds. (The post) is located on the Sabah border but there is a need for it as Lawas is a gateway to foreigners.
“The state government, with the support of the Premier (Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg) and his deputy Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan, has allocated land for the construction using state government funds,” he told Bernama.
Mejar-Jen Dzulkafli was speaking to reporters after the 56th anniversary parade of the First Division at Camp Penrissen here yesterday.
